Strawberry-sweet posters and moonlit teasers for My Secret Romance
Rom-com drama My Secret Romance looks like it’ll be right up my alley, all cute and fluffy with liberal amounts of romantic hijinks already included in the first teasers. One of my favorite guilty pleasure actors, Sung Hoon (Five Kids), stars as a chaebol-playboy-turned-cranky-department-head, and his main love interest is a lovely but conservative young nutritionist, who will be played by idol group Secret’s Song Ji-eun (Sweet Home, Sweet Honey).
The story starts with a sizzling one night stand between the two, but they don’t meet again until three years later, when they find each other working at the same company. He’s a workaholic senior executive, while she enters the nutrition department guiding the company cafeteria.
One teaser that was recently released is a short 15-second clip, while the other is an extended version. In the first clip, Sung Hoon tells Song Ji-eun not to worry because he’s not going to hit on her, but the scene shows otherwise as he reaches for her and drags her into a deep kiss. Her response is that it doesn’t matter anyway because they won’t see each other after today. But the copy reads: “Will one night turn into two nights?”
In the longer teaser, we witness their first meeting on a tour bus, where Song Ji-eun accidentally sits on Sung Hoon’s lap after a particularly bumpy pothole on the road. He doesn’t look too pleased at her intrusion of his personal bubble, but moments later they’re together on the beach, and they have dialogue exchange from the first teaser. They’re drinking wine together like friends, but when the afternoon sun turns into romantic moonlight, the atmosphere changes and the copy reads: “A sweet mistake that can’t be revealed? I thought it would be just once…!”
Then presumably three years later, Sung Hoon grabs Song Ji-eun’s wrist, twirling her in that stereotypical (but still heart-pounding) K-drama way. When he sits her down to talk, he tells her sternly “… because we were a one-night stand,” and her eyes glisten as she looks up at him.
So is he trying to deny further involvement with her? According to the poster above, “After her, his dating game turned to 0%” (hinting that he may still have unresolved feelings). Meanwhile, the caption on her side reads, “A woman who takes responsibility 100% for her man’s heart and body.” Below, the poster of them looking lovey-dovey in a convertible reads: “An unbelievable moment, one night. A world full of you, two nights.”
OCN’s upcoming Monday-Tuesday drama My Secret Romance will begin airing on April 17, but an earlier version will be released through the Oksusu mobile app on the Friday and Saturday prior to each OCN broadcast.
